Tim’s Car Talk
Mainly focused on the local car scene in Victoria, BC and Vancouver Island, but also covering events happening around the Pacific Northwest and the West Coast, Tim’s Car Talk is a website for car enthusiasts. We feature a wide range of all things cars that we (and hope you) will find of interest: new cars; unique vintage cars of all types; auctions; and, current and vintage racing.
Our goal is to give you a one-stop website to find out everything happening in the local car scene, including events, clubs, and interesting cars and people in Victoria and within a day’s drive away!
We will get out to as many events as we can in 2014, post pictures in our gallery and write about the people involved in the local car scene. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our passion for cars.
Our front page gallery features cars we have seen at local shows and we are updating the gallery on a regular basis. If you would like your car featured, then send us along a high quality picture and we consider including it.
Marilyn provided the push for creating the website and continues to provide support by attending events, taking pictures, and editing both the website content and the newsletter. Marilyn’s background in graphic design, marketing, communications and business development has been invaluable. It’s pretty cool that she owns a 2012 Mini Cooper S. It was one of the few new small cars she could find with three pedals that can really go! She can also claim that she beat some of the men in the autocross event at a Mini Victoria Performance Driving Program (only 2 seconds behind the winner)!
